A fragment of the cDNA encoding the third intracellular loop of the rat m1 muscarinic receptor was cloned, and the DNA was expressed in Escherichia coli as a fusion protein. The fusion protein was purified and utilized as an antigen to raise a polyclonal antiserum in rabbits. Chinese hamster ovary cells stably transfected with the cDNA encoding each of the… (More)
Excitatory amino acid (EAA) analogues activate receptors that are coupled to the increased hydrolysis of phosphoinositides (PIs). In these studies, hippocampal slices were prepared from neonatal rats (6-11 days old) to characterize the effects of EAA analogues on these receptors. The concentrations of ibotenate and… (More)
We report a case of myositis that resulted from disseminated cryptococcosis in a patient with hepatitis C cirrhosis. One year after cessation of treatment, the patient remains symptom free with negative results of serum cryptococcal antigen tests and negative culture results.
The purpose of this quasi-experimental study was to measure the impact of service-learning on academic achievement of students enrolled in an introductory course in agricultural applications of microcomputers. The treatment consisted of a service-learning project that engaged students in the conversion and compression of digital video clips for integration… (More)
